So many great vetivers... Vétiver de Frédéric - Frédéric Haldimann

...I wore TDC yesterday for the first time in awhile. Untamed might be overstated but it struck me again as the real thing. Let us know your impressions when you wear it, DieNase.

...I agree with you about Coeur de Vetiver but I'm not sure I agree with you about "Sel de Vetiver" -- I think it's rugged and real, an untamed vetiver.

...Thanks for the great input regarding the Lubin fragrances. I also think it's a great house that is moving in the right direction. I'll have to get some more samples of these and load them into an atomizer next time. As an aside, Slumberhouse's Rume has a pronounced Cola note.

...Yes. That floral note in the Tauer vetiver keeps it bright and lively. I find it uplifting and energizing. I forgot the Goutal vetiver. Another excellent one. I don't get much vetiver out of the Heeley you mentioned though I do like that frag very much. Itasca is intriguing to me. I have a small sample vial and I don't get much of anything out of it. I'm a firm believer in spraying perfume though to really get a feel for it and I suspect that's why I didn't get much the single time I sampled. I need to try this again as I really like this house. The Lubin vetiver from a few years ago (not the recent iterations) is excellent, too. More than anything it reminds me of the original Guerlain vetiver (prior to reformulation), which has a gasoline note in the opening rather than the citrus note in the reformulation.Could you tell me more about your impressions of Itasca -- the notes sound so good.

...Lately, I've been enjoying a variety of vetivers -- there are so many strong vetiver-themed fragrances. It seems like every house has a great entry.The most recent vetiver that I've added to my collection is Dior's Private Collection. It's very smooth and refined. Very easy to wear. It's awesome, though not for someone who is looking for a true vetiver-root experience. A touch of coffee really smoothes this out and makes it much more user-friendly than some of my other favorites listed below.Other great ones include Chanel's Sycamore, Guerlain's, MPG's Route de Vetiver, Carlo Corinto, Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire, TDC's Sel de Vetiver, and Tauer's Vetiver Dance (other's don't seem to like this one as much as I do).
